The Forgotten City Review
Posted: 4 weeks ago, last updated 3 weeks ago.
Play involves a bit of combat, which is similar to The Elder Scrolls as it's based on this game, but violence will only get you so far. Your real task is questioning the interconnected community of characters to wheedle out the information you need to make your decisions.
This might prove fruitful for your current loop, or it may provide information useful for your next go around. Armed with this knowledge you have to make complex moral choices if you are to solve the epic mystery. How you tackle things, and the choices you make will determine the outcome for the city.
Along the way, you get to explore an open-world ancient Roman city with historically authentic art, architecture, costumes and customs. You investigate an intriguing and non-linear narrative with many endings. Grapple with moral dilemmas which have life-and-death consequences. It's a game that is both critically and commercially acclaimed. with over 3 million downloads.
The result is a game where you solve problems with reason, charm, bribery, intimidation, violence, or by cleverly exploiting the time-loop.
